Reviewer’s Guide for On-Premises VMware Identity Manager 2.9.1
VMware Identity Manager™ extends your infrastructure to provide a seamless single sign-on (SSO) experience to web, mobile, software-as-a-service (SaaS), and legacy applications. With VMware Identity Manager, you can build a self-service catalog of applications and virtual desktops that your end users can access from any supported device. As an IT professional, you can use VMware Identity Manager to deliver, manage, and secure enterprise assets, and support bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives from a central location.
The Reviewer’s Guide for On-Premises VMware Identity Manager 2.9.1 explores VMware Identity Manager (formerly known as VMware Workspace Portal) and introduces its benefits, key features, architecture, and components. The guide includes exercises to evaluate the features in the context of relevant use cases.
Note: This guide provides the information you need to set up and operate a basic VMware Identity Manager on-premises deployment for evaluation, not production. To deploy a production environment, select On-Premise from the drop-down menu on the VMware Identity Manager Documentation page, as shown in Figure 1.
This guide is for IT professionals and product evaluators who want to install VMware Identity Manager and are familiar with VMware vSphere®. Both current and new administrators of VMware Identity Manager can benefit from using this guide. Familiarity with networking concepts, such as Active Directory, identity management, directory services, and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), is assumed. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinApp®, VMware Horizon® 7, Citrix application virtualization, and RSA SecurID, is also helpful.
